The Challenge

Big data analysis opens up new opportunities for the worlds of biomedical, biotech, and agricultural research, but working with big data can be as frustrating as it is rewarding. To help you realize the potential of this remarkable resource, our company delivers solutions to ease and streamline multi-omics analysis and integration.
From basic biology research to pharmaceutical development and precision medicine, genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, metabolomic and other “omics” data are increasingly being used for research, diagnosis, and treatment development. As the technology used to generate ‘omics data progresses, costs are decreasing, making ‘omics analysis increasingly feasible for applications from exploratory research to precision diagnosis. The discoveries already made in the field—mainly stemming from research labs– are just the start of a big data revolution. The challenge is to enable a wider range of researchers and clinicians to take advantage of these new resources. With our user-friendly platform, we envision on the horizon a “smartphone”-like interface in the hands of practical medical workers and non-bioinformatician biologists, allowing them to take advantage of the power of big data.

Our Solution

Our solution is a set of online tools covering a wide range of -omics data types that are capable of integrating analyses for different data types and are accessible via a simple user interface. The T-BioInfo platform combines analysis of heterogeneous data types and machine learning approaches, as well as integration and modeling. The simple interface and intuitive options for creating complex algorithmic pipelines also make this platform useful for bioinformatics education. Importantly, we provide the means for this set of tools to be run remotely, freeing users from the constraints of limited computational resources.”

Research

Our product has numerous applications in the field of research, assisting researchers with analyzing and visualization diverse sets of biological data.

Education

Pine Biotech is developing a set of online educational courses designed to teach professionals and students the basics of bioinformatics, and how to use the T-BioInfo platform’s features.

Clinical

We recognize the opportunity to facilitate clinical research and development of new drugs and therapies for cancer, genetic disease, and DNA and RNA viruses.

T-BioInfo

T-BioInfo, developed by the Tauber Bioinformatics Research Center at the University of Haifa has a exclusive commercialization license with Pine Biotech. T-BioInfo is a Discovery and Decision-making platform that leverages big data analysis algorithms to provide deeper insight into cellular regulation that allows for development of biomarker diagnostics, identification of small molecule candidates for drug development, and strategic insight into overcoming pressing environmental challenges. The T-BioInfo platform combines proprietary algorithms and publicly available methods while hiding the complexity of code-line interface with an intuitive visual interface that is consistent across genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, metabolomic, and structural biology data analysis pipelines. This approach has been developed as a result of collaborations with leading teams in many scientific projects in virology, cancer, genetic diseases and agriculture.
